Holmby Hills hidden oasis. Nestled behind bamboo hedges and secluded from the street, this radiant architectural home feels far from the bustle of city life yet is moments from the Beverly Hills Hotel and Rodeo Drive.
Built in 1961 and stunningly reimagined in 2017, the home showcases a classic midcentury aesthetic infused with timeless contemporary flourishes. A seamless, open floor plan, impeccable finishes and resort-like grounds appear as if plucked from the pages of Architectural Digest.
Situated off a lush, secluded street and enveloped in towering bamboo hedges and greenery, the home feels worlds away from the hustle of the city. Behind gates, a picturesque walkway lined with majestic palms provides a striking approach to the ultra-private, 5,000-square-foot residence. A soaring great room with 12-foot ceilings, wide-plank hardwood floors and an elevated fireplace is perfectly conceived for entertaining. Fleetwood walls of glass line the room on either side, leading to manicured lawns and an ultra-private backyard highlighted by a swimming pool, spa and terrace immersed in an understated jungle canopy. Beyond the great room, a light-filled den with full bar opens to an alfresco patio, while an additional living room with fireplace flows to a magnificent eat-in chef’s kitchen, replete with Miele appliances, walnut cabinetry and a large center island that lends textural warmth to the home’s contemporary elements. A staircase off the kitchen leads to two large ensuite bedrooms, each with elegantly appointed bathrooms and generous walk-in closets. Crowned by skylights that bathe the space in light, a hallway off the great room reveals a voluminous ensuite bedroom with walls of glass framing views over the tranquil front garden. Secluded at the end of the wing, the grand primary suite features a staggering showroom closet with a marble-topped island and sliding glass walls that fuse the bedroom with a private patio and the pool terrace beyond. Remarkable in scale and appointment, the primary bath features a large soaking tub, dual water closets, a concealed flat-screen television, and glass-enclosed shower overlooking a serene meditation garden.
Complete with Crestron automation and security, this extraordinary residence is a modern sanctuary just moments from the best of Beverly Hills in one of L.A.’s most prestigious neighborhoods. It is a home for the collector; the traveler; the explorer; those seeking an effortless living experience that feels like an exotic retreat yet captures the quintessential spirit of Los Angeles.
